News: Wheeler could be a salary cap casualty, according to the Miami Herald.
Impact: With the Dolphins not getting much bang for their buck at the linebacking position, the team could elect to release both Dannell Ellerbe and Wheeler and look for cheaper options either in the draft or free agency. Wheeler, who racked up 118 stops in 2013, saw his tackle numbers dip to 46 (in 15 games) this past season.

News: Wheeler had 45 tackles during the 2014 season.
Impact: That's a pretty ho hum number for a player who played in 15 games and started four. Wheeler could end up on the roster bubble next season, as he failed to impress this year and had plenty of opportunities with all of the injuries the team had to the linebacking corps.
